Willow Cottage has 2 bedrooms, one double and one twin room, fully equipped kitchen with hob, oven, microwave, fridge (with freezer section), bathroom with WC, sink and walk-in shower. It is centrally heated and the open plan sitting room has an electric fire and TV with DVD player and Freeview. It has an enclosed south facing, private garden. Wi-Fi is available in the cottage.
Hillcrest Park is our rural, 6 acre, holiday location in the northernmost of the Yorkshire Dales, Teesdale. Surrounded by farmland, it offers peace, tranquillity and beautiful views of Teesdale – yet is only 10mins from the A66. It is ideal for walkers, cyclists and dog owners (we have a dog walking field onsite) and is close to Richmond, Barnard Castle, High Force Waterfall, Raby Castle and a host of other Dales attractions.
We aim to offer all our guests - and their pets! - a comfortable, get-away-from-it all, rural retreat.
We (Ed and Kate) have been at Hillcrest Park since March 2011, and have been delighted that many of our visitors return again and again. Ed's local knowledge is pretty comprehensive and we enjoy welcoming people to this beautiful area and providing a peaceful base for them to explore Teesdale and the surrounding Dales.
We live on site and are on hand to help out our guests with anything they may need, but also happy to leave guests to enjoy their break in peace.
Kate Nichols purchased this cottage in 2011
We have a 3 acre field, which our visitors use to exercise their dogs, or just to wander around and take in the views - which makes us just a bit different to your average holiday cottage, and truly pet-friendly.
Changeover day is Friday, but we can be flexible if necessary. Arrivals not before 4pm and departures by 10am. Again, there can be flexibility in this.
Notes on prices:
Three night breaks are available from £180 to £215, dependent on the time of year.

We are less than a mile away from the River Tees, and you can pick up the Teesdale Way at Winston Gate and walk to Whorlton, where there is a very dog friendly pub called The Bridge Inn. It is a beautiful (appx) 10m circular walk, taking in the suspension bridge at Whorlton and some stunning Teesdale scenery.
The nearest shop is at Gainford (a 7minute drive), but we usually keep a stock of basics available from our kitchen, in case you run out!
